Out in the Streets with Ashley’s Back to Nature Day 53


Image

Today there was massive rain along with thunderstorms, so that kept me out of the streets selling Ashley’s Back to Nature aromatherapy products and the scared dog hiding underneath the bed. On the positive side, storms produce beautiful rainbows.

When I’m not out selling, I’m home doing something to keep this biz moving upwards. I called a local nursing home to see about selling my KureAll Skin Balm to help their patients with bed sores. The director was very receptive, but said before they can use a product, it has to be approved by the FDA.  She was generous enough to schedule an appointment for me to come to the nursing home to introduce my products to her employees for a couple of hours on their next payday. Nice lady! I’m sure I’ll make some good sales that day along with helping pick-up a few spirits.

After our conversation, I called the FDA, was on hold for around 30 minutes, then got someone on the other end of the line who immediately told me to go to the internet. Why is it every time I need help with something, I’m told to go to the internet? My usual self was persistent for answers instead of the run around, so she finally gave me another number to call. I got voice mail, left a message, no return call as of ten hours ago. I’ll keep trying until I get this KureAll Skin Balm approved and eventually turned into a household name.

The crazy thing is the FDA approves all these drugs and people die. Do you have any idea how many people succumb from drugs prescribed by doctors every year? Many, many thousands of people. Here I am, trying to get my natural and organic KureAll Skin Balm in nursing homes with ingredients coming from nature, the tea tree and lavender essential oils, along with beeswax from the bees, sweet almond, jojoba and wheat germ oil and vitamin E.  I understand regulations but at least return my call and screw the internet.

After the phone calls, I made many jars of Whipped Creme Body Butter Lotion, my biggest seller. I also made some Stress Relief Oil with lavender and peppermint essential oils, using sweet almond oil as my carrier oil. Although sweet almond oil is full of vitamins and proteins, I prefer jojoba oil because it doesn’t go rancid, it’s high in antioxidants and the oil is golden in color so it makes the perfume more visually appealing.

After making the products, I had the task of putting the labels and logo on all the jars and bottles. After labeling, I loaded my purple carrying case with my products so I’ll be ready to go door to door tomorrow.  It’s not suppose to rain, but will be freezing cold. I’ll bundle up well and do my thing.

Out in the Streets with Ashley’s Back to Nature Day 48

I had an abundance of fun out in the streets selling Ashley’s Back to Nature natural and organic aromatherapy products today. The weather was exceptionally nice for this time of year, around 60 degrees and the sun was shining, no dreary clouds. People were in good moods. My energy level was high, so that always helps me sell better. When I’m tired, I don’t sell as well because I can’t think on my feet and my low energy comes across as bland.

It was well worth my 52 mile round-trip drive to Murphy, NC. I gained ten new clients/friends and one new wholesale account. My roll-on perfume oils are selling very well. I sold twenty 1/3 oz. bottles today, such as Peace & Tranquility with lemon, lime, blood orange, pink grapefruit & eucalyptus oils… Patchouli… Lavender… and Stress Relief with lavender & peppermint. One lady purchased 12 bottles. My perfume oils contain no alcohol which dries out your skin. I use either jojoba or sweet almond oil for the carrier oil in my perfumes. They nourish your skin and the essential oils make you smell like a breathe of fresh air.

I came home, checked out all my jars and bottles to make sure the labels were still in good order, a few will have to be replaced. I wish the labels weren’t such a challenge with the scrapes and smudge marks that happen in my travels. One day I will resolve this issue because my products have to be perfect on the inside and out when I hand them over to my clients/friends.

Smiles til my next post,
